The most recent articles & research from Devo
One thing that’s become evident to me after years attending Mobile World Congress is that, in fact, there are several events running in parallel, with a few common denominators: network technology providers, device manufacturers, telecom operators, and services companies all come to Barcelona to present and demonstrate the latest and greatest of the year’s dominating trends. It is a fascinating process that shapes the communications services landscape and results in new technologies in as little as 2-3 years for us as consumers.
This year’s Mobile World Congress news was dominated by 5G, IoT, artificial intelligence, phones, and autonomous cars, and it was really difficult to escape those topics. While you might think Devo has little to do with foldable phones or autonomous cars, there are more subtle ways in which these big trends align with our portfolio of solutions.
Indeed, a significant portion of the customer interactions we had revolved in one way or another around those headlines, but equally interesting was the ‘red thread’ in what we heard from most of the services providers that visited the Devo booth: the need to ensure today’s operations at scale while preparing for the challenges and complexity 5G and IoT are bringing.
Massive data processing for multiple applications, not only network and services operations but also security, fraud detection, etc., is a well-understood problem, but solving it efficiently at scale from a cost and time-to-market perspective is a different kind of animal.
Let’s discuss in greater detail:
Again, this was just the depiction of the current landscape. One can only expect these needs will become even more urgent to address with the increase in machine data to process once 5G is running at full steam, once IoT applications begin to proliferate, once there is a full transition to microservices-based architectures, or once VR/AR services become mainstream.
In many of our interactions, the topic of use cases came up. These are the top three I would personally highlight:
Such shared views on concerns and use cases led many times to an equally common set of recommendations from our point of view, all of them derived from our own experiences and the challenges dealt with in the last years and very much aligned to our own company’s DNA:
It is difficult to step out of MWC 2019 without a high level of excitement and fully energized. This edition was memorable in so many aspects, but from a personal standpoint, I can’t help but remember so many good interactions and the constant feeling that, from a Devo perspective, we do have a truly unique proposition backed up by a truly unique technology, and we felt the same energy from those who visited the booth. Here’s to continuing the conversation at next year’s event.
